Yeh Raha Dil Last Episode Review – It Could’ve Been Well, Even Though It Ended Well!

Ohkay so, finally, Yeh Raha Dil came to an end. As much as I am happy with the ending, I wish I could’ve said that about the way the ending was approached. The drama-makers expect us to tune to their drama (despite all the dragging) right till the end & just when the viewers do that in order to see their favorite characters together, they are given probably last 30 seconds of the drama together thinking it will be enough? I remember a lot of viewers complained about the fact that Hayat & Zaki being the lead pair didn’t have much scenes together but I always thought they must be saving the best for the last & we will get to see their magical scenes (& a lot of them) but now I feel trolled & yes, the drama-makers being responsible for it who literally gave the coverage to every other character for weeks & not Hayat & Zaki who we all were watching the drama for in the first place. Yes, I do understand that their relationship went through a lot of phases but to literally treat them as an after-thought was a bad bad idea! I don’t know why but I feel our drama-makers know how to kick start a drama but they really lack the knowledge of how to reach a perfect ending & this is exactly what happened with Yeh Raha Dil as well.

So, Salman came back & apologized to Hayat, even though I wasn’t expecting his return since it didn’t make any difference anymore, but the closure to this aspect was a bit too unrealistic. At least Hayat could’ve fought with him like the way she always did, it was good that she forgave him but demanding a little explanation wouldn’t have hurt. Yes, Hayat was at a happy place since she got her parents back, a sister, her home, enough finances to lead a stable life so it didn’t really matter to her what Salman did but at least Salman owed her an explanation!

Ohkay, even though I liked that Nida was shown leaving no stone unturned to convince everyone around her that she didn’t want to get married to Zaki since he & Hayat belonged together but I found those scenes a bit too unnecessarily long, like they could’ve easily cut down on them to accommodate others’ or if not anyone else; Hayat & Zaki’s scenes since they were the main leads. The conversation between Zaki, Nida & Jimmy was way too stretched because they kept on repeating the same things over & over again. Nida already explained herself to Zaki & told him the reason why she was backing out but looked like she had to do a whole lot of explaining once again only to fill the duration of the episode.

I really liked how they showed Hayat reflecting on everything that had happened in her life lately, where she was thankful for each & everything as this is exactly what she wanted but yes, she was dreading the idea of Zaki’s return in her life, even though in the end, she was the one who approached & confessed, so I guess it would’ve made so much sense if they had told what changed in her like what convinced her to go by what Nida wanted?

I never really thought that I would say, but out of all the conversations, I had a good laugh at Nida & Hassan’s conversation because his dialogues provided that comedy quotient that this drama was once known for. I mean how simple & plain could he be where he was being informed that he was played upon & he was comparing himself & his situation to Shahrukh Khan that too based on hypothesis? Oh well, Hassan did have a slip of tongue where he said ‘achi family ki larki’, hmmmm so even he wasn’t so unconditionally in love with Hayat & it was obvious that after seeing Hayat’s lifestyle & her family, Hassan thought it wasn’t a bad idea to be with a girl like her as it would help him secure his future & to be honest, it looked like he was more sad for missing out on the opportunity in stead of mourning Hayat’s loss, lol!

So, talking about the last scene, I so wish they had recreated that magical chemistry that both Hayat & Zaki once shared but since they didn’t have much time & they were rushing, they just brought in the flavor of the love-hate relationship that they both had. I am not sure why Zaki wasn’t the one who approached Hayat since he was going through so much of pain to play tricks on her so now when Nida was out of his life, what was he waiting for? I liked the fact that the writer gave a message that in stead of rushing into the marriage, both Hayat & Zaki set goals for themselves, like showcasing that they had their own life & priorities, even though it saddened me because I assumed we’d be getting to see Dilbar Jahangir (DJ) for the last time performing on their wedding so it didn’t happen but I still liked the fact that the drama didn’t end on a typical happily-ever-after note!

Overall, this episode was good but it could’ve been so much better. There was too much rona dhona for my liking, especially in a drama which started off as a rom-com. Yes, the things that needed closure needed this sort of treatment but just the way they added some bits of comedy through Hassan, they could’ve done that through other characters too in order to stay true to the genre of the drama. Even though the parents had their happy ending, but I wish they had shown their reactions on this matter too, where they had encouraged & appreciated Nida for her honesty & selflessness & had given their nod of approval to Hayat & Zaki. I feel so much else could’ve been done in this last episode but it was an opportunity wasted. However, I liked the fact that the writer very intelligently brought out the originality of the characters & kept them true to who they were introduced as. Nida chose to be stubborn just the way she was introduced even though she had so many people telling her that she shouldn’t call off this marriage. Zaki stayed confused even when the coast was clear & still wanted someone else (in this case Hayat) to take charge of the situation, like he just knew that he loved her but didn’t know the way to go about it. Hayat stayed calm & relaxed even after seeing the one who betrayed her in the worst possible way, like these were the details that I loved & enjoyed watching, it showcased the ability of the writer & the clear cut vision of his with which he conceived those characters!

I must thank the writer Mustafa Afridi for giving us such amazing characters & some very amusing dialogues throughout this drama. I will especially thank him for writing the character of Haroon, such a cool father who in stead of blaming anyone else, always held his son accountable for his mistakes & shortcomings. I loved his sarcastic one-liners that he directed at Zaki in order to wake him up but it just didn’t happen. I enjoyed Hayat’s character too & Zaki was an interesting hero as well who stayed confused right till the end. Fatima’s character was another interesting addition to the story where she was unapologetically herself & didn’t believe in posing to be someone she wasn’t. I wish they had shed a bit more light on what went wrong between Affaq & Hayat’s mother because during the drama it was hinted that something or the other will be revealed but it looked like a forgotten detail, like I was actually interested to find out the reason behind them drifting apart. I will especially thank Arjumand Azhar Hussain & Ayesha Sana for their phenomenal performances, just loved watching them as Haroon & Fatima. Imran Peerzada performed decently too. Adnan Jaffar deserves a special mention for playing the character of Jimmy with such finesse that he made us laugh even in the most complicated situations. Ahmed Ali Akbar & Yumna Zaidiwere perfect as Zaki & Hayat & stayed in their element throughout the drama. The one who impressed me the most with the improved acting was Anum Gohar, like I could never imagine that the girl who was the weakest actor in the drama Kathputli had this much potential to perform like she was just amazing as Nida & lived the character of a fierce competitive model to perfection. Last but definitely not the least, I will thank Ehtashamuddin for becoming memorable Dilbar Jahangir & making us laugh hysterically! The director did a brilliant job as well but after a certain point it became a bit too obvious that even he couldn’t have a grip on the story because the producers chose to swoop in & told him to stretch the drama. I so wish Hum TV stops doing that because they have ruined some amazing amazing dramas by resorting to this practice.

Will I still recommend this drama to those who are interested in binge-watching it? Most certainly yes because it would be easier for them to skim through those episodes where the story lost its charm & became unreasonably stagnant. For me, it is going to remain such a drama that I have mixed feelings about, like I loved more than half of it but the ending part failed to keep my interest intact. Overall, I will still say it was a good & fun experience to tune to Yeh Raha Dil. Please share your thoughts about this interesting drama!

Khudgarz Episode 9 & 10 Review – Going Strong!

Ohkay so, this episode of Khudgarz was interesting & engaging. It surely kept me at the edge of my seat because I assumed something bad was going to happen to Aairah & it didn’t but then again that idea can’t be ruled out since Hassan’s calm is an indication of a storm that might be coming her way!

Finally, Abeer & Raheel were not only settling down with each other but they were developing understanding as well. Since Abeer has had such a bitter experience in the past, she didn’t take a second in misunderstanding Raheel whereas he was only trying to protect her. It is nice that Abeer acknowledges the fact that Aairah has brought such a nice change in her life & has guided her through. If it wasn’t for Aairah, Abeer would have never given it a thought that may be Raheel’s suggestion of looking for another job had some solid reason behind it!

Hassan obviously couldn’t cope up with the fact that everyone around him was happy & busy in their lives. Abeer not only left him but moved on too & right in front of him, Aairah & Junaid were falling in love with each other with each passing day, so obviously Hassan had to do something to wipe those smiles off their face. Sending old photographs to Raheel only showcased how sickly twisted Hassan is. Hassan literally devised a plan to send Junaid away so that he can work on getting Aairah comfortable with him. Hassan can clearly see that his father is not only sympathizing with him but is paying heed to everything that he says, that is why he is making sure to steer his thoughts against Junaid.

I have said it before & I will say that again, the main culprit behind Hassan’s unreasonability is Munawwar, his father. The way Munawwar spoke about Aairah & finding a girl for Hassan clearly showcased the sort of mentality he has. Also, the way he treated Inayat was enough to show how heartless he is. It is so obvious that Munawwar is regretting his decision of getting Aairah & Junaid married & I couldn’t believe when he judged Aairah for falling in love with her husband & also judged her father for getting her married to Junaid. Munawwar has shown how unreasonable he is & because he believes everything that Hassan says, I am sure he will be paying a huge price because of it. Even though Munawwar found out what Hassan did with Raheel & Abeer, he didn’t bother asking his son for an explanation as he was too busy blaming his wife & sympathizing with Hassan!

Aairah could already feel something. Her 6th sense was telling her that things might go wrong. Aairah was right in feeling that when everything was wrong, she would feel at ease but now when things were seemingly falling into their place, she could sense that something bad was coming her way. Aairah’s dependence on Junaid & her emotional attachment with him was super sweet. Just like Aairah, Junaid has also realized that he can’t be without her. It was for the first time that Junaid spoke against Hassan when he found out that Aairah took a ride to her office with Hassan, it goes to show that when it comes to Aairah, Junaid is wary of a lot of things & he doesn’t trust just anyone. I already feel bad knowing that both Munawwar & Hassan are against Aairah & Junaid, they so do not deserve this!!!

Overall it was a very interesting episode. I loved the way Abeer fell in love with Raheel all over again when she found out that he was trying to protect her from Hassan & all those office colleagues who badmouth her. I must say one of their colleagues is so annoying, I just wish he gets sacked ASAP. All those funny moments that Abeer & Raheel shared were really cute, it was nice seeing Abeer happy & Raheel going out of the way to make sure that she is happy. All the actors; Mansha Pasha, Amina Sheikh, Syed Jibran, Salman Saeed & Sami Khanare doing a wonderful job & the director has done justice to this script & the characters. Definitely looking forward to the next episode & yes, Tuesday seems way too far now. Please share your thoughts about this episode of Khudgarz!

Alif Allah Aur Insaan Episode 39 – Review!

Ohkay so, finally this drama is headed towards an end & I can’t tell how relieved I am but it is sad to say that the direction of this drama has now become a joke. Everything is being tackled in such a sloppy fashion that you just can’t believe it is the same drama which started off on such an amazing note.

Well, Nazneen & Taimur got divorced & now I have lost count of how many divorcees are in this drama. Let’s count again, so, Shahzeb, Basit, Taimur, Nazneen, Zimmal & Ali (Zimmal’s first husband), whoa, that many! To be honest, Nazneen & her divorces have become a joke & looks like she will be losing her sanity as well! Haye koi isay new kurta khareed de!

Roshni has not only grown suspicious towards Shaheer, she even went on to do a little investigation herself, let’s see what she comes up with!

Reena finally came clean & revealed everything about her relationship with Nawazish. What Nawazish did was so bizarre but then he got what he asked for, but then no one really paid heed to what Reena was saying. Even though Reena’s parents make an appearance way too often but they are being treated as fillers & nothing else.

So, Shahzeb’s mother thinks that he should get married to the girl he refused to help. Zimmal came in search of peace & found Shahzeb & his mother. After Zimmal stumbled across Shahzeb, I already had a feeling that they both will end up together. Hmmm interesting!

Anyways, I can’t wait for this drama to be over now. Please share your thoughts about this episode.

Lal Ishq Episodes 12,13,14 Review – Awesome

As always, these episodes of Lal Ishq were absolutely flawless. The characters are eccentric, difficult, confused and yet so relatable, so endearing. To be honest, for quite a long time, this is the only drama that keeps you occupied in a trance for its full duration. There is a genius at work behind it and thus all the actors are absolutely perfect in their characterization. I wonder why is it not getting more appreciation than all the silly ones out there who have no substance to offer.

So Ansa Mehrunnisa is still herself and both her brother and son are hurt but she is stuck in time where Bali’s death to avenge Hukum’s murder is the only thing that will make her happy. Her ego is sky high and she is more patriarchal than any male landlord could ever be. In her eyes, revenge is above all other relations, even those who who are her own flesh and blood.

The way all characters are entwined is just amazing. They all shot at eachother when none of them really wanted to. Yawar Kamal was pained to hurt Punar and vice versa but the grip of Hukum’s murder is so strong that it has overtaken all the good feelings of today.

Punar and Rameen have both felt attraction for eachother but the “mard ka bacha” is just so shy and humble when it comes to expressing her feelings whereas Rameen is the strong one who is enjoying the attention and also seeing Punar uncomfortable. Aabi Khan is just amazing as the loving, shy, obedient Mehr Punar who is pretending to be aggressive and revengeful to make his controlling mother happy. Every expression and dialogue he delivers is just flawless.

Bali and Jajji have finally reached truce. Till they had not met, they were both suspicious of eachother but when they met, had a vent out of pent up emotions by hitting eachother, they could connect on a very sentimental level. They saw that both of them felt immense love and care for Farhad and Rameen and understood eachother much better. Bali has agreed to let his kids keep on thinking of Jajji as Iqbal, their father. He felt it was a small price to pay for the sacrifices Jajji has done for his children and he is filled with gratitude. In his eyes, Zohra’s death has settled his score with the Mehrs and they have nothing more to do with him. Little does he know that they are still blood thirsty for him.

Mahi wants to delay her marriage because she thinks she can stop Punar from killing Bali and getting murdered by him or his men or get punished by the state for murder. Even though Mehrunnisa does not pay any heed to what Mahi or anyone in the household thinks for that matter, Mahi still wants to do everything she can to put an end to this saga of bloodshed and let her brother lead a normal life. She has convinced Rameen of her cause and we will see in the next episode if she can get her proper message across to Farhad well and whether he would support her in this decision or not.

Aangan Episode 10 Review – Thoroughly Enjoyable!

Ohkay so, it was yet another fun episode of Aangan with the focus on one issue – Aqdas’s proposal for Shaina. I think now that the introductory part is over & every character has gotten enough coverage to show their nature, everyone has settled down emotionally & things are pretty calm in Zaitoon Manzil these days!

Before anything else, I have to discuss the assumption that Zaitoon made about Hajra. The dual meaning conversation that they both had where Zaitoon was talking about a baby & Hajra was discussing about Aqdas’s proposal was so hilarious. Zaitoon’s naievty is super sweet, it just makes it so obvious that she is very simple minded but still she tries really hard to portray that she knows everyyyything. But I must say the mention of ’24 hours mai khushkhabri’ got Zaitoon confused too because no matter how simple she is, even she knew things aren’t this quick when it comes to this matter!!

Sadly Abba Jee was heart broken today. What he said about Shafiq complaining about him to Asim was sad to hear. He only wanted to guide his grandson but he got a reality check that no one is under his control anymore. The way the generation gap has been shown is brilliant. Abba Jee only wanted to convey what he felt but had no idea that he will get blocked because no one had the patience to listen to & understand his concerns!

Hajra got a bit too excited, therefore she told everyone everything based on her own assumptions. Even Shaina seemed a little excited because she knew that Aqdas is a nice guy. I loved the way Rubina & Laila were teasing Shaina. It was so good to see all of them coming together & looking forward to Faseeha’s arrival because they all wanted to be a part of Hajra’s happiness.

Even though Faseeha did put forth Aqdas’s proposal for Zoya but it was too obvious that she wasn’t too keen on it as she was judging Zoya for her one & only son & she didn’t really meet her standards. Everyone was not only taken aback but were shocked to hear what Faseeha had to say as no one saw that coming!

I once again loved how Shaina reasoned with Hajra & tried to put things into perspective. It was so beautiful that Shaina curbed her feelings & told Hajra to be happy for Zoya. I am sure things won’t be too smooth & there will be a lot of obstacles in the way & oh yes, the biggest obstacle would be getting Aalu & Anila’s permission.

I loved this episode & had a great time watching it. Even though every episode might focus on a thing or two but there are so many moments which make every episode wholesome & complete, like I loved the bonding of Hajra, Rubina & Laila over the kitchen table where they discussed how Zaitoon should be approached & informed about Aqdas’s proposal. Rubina’s neverending taunts directed at Zahid are amusing too, but sadly he doesn’t pay heed to what his wife is trying to convey. Overall it was a thoroughly enjoyable episode but I am looking forward to the next one as I want to see Zoya’s reaction. Please share your thoughts about this episode of Aangan.
